The hip-strip is a friendly, warm, quintessentially Missoula neighborhood, and a great way to experience the town as the locals do. This modern decorated loft is only moments away from everything Missoula has to offer. Steps from the Clark Fork River, University of Montana, diverse dining, coffee shops, and the best ice cream in Missoula. The historic HO Bell building was renovated in the 2000 and features reclaimed pine floors, gas fireplace, floor to ceiling windows, and a phenomenal skylight.
The loft is a hidden gem, just off Higgins in the heart of the Hip-Strip. A short walk across the beautiful Clark Fork River and you are in the heart of downtown Missoula. The loft features reclaimed pine floors throughout, a gas fireplace for cool evenings, and thoughtful decor with personal touches like books, games, and artwork collected over the years. Both bedrooms feature new Helix Sleep mattresses, the most comfortable mattress you will ever sleep on, and the queen sofa bed features a memory foam mattress. Floor to ceiling windows and a spacious private balcony allow for great views of the sunrise over Mount Sentinel, and the massive skylight ensures the loft always feels bright and warm. Business travelers will find the office space quite convenient and an added bonus is the washer and dryer for your laundry needs. A fully stocked kitchen with eat-at breakfast bar provides alternate dining options when staying "in". While you are only moments from all the excitement downtown Missoula has to offer, being across the river allows for privacy and quiet ensuring a restful stay.
Guests have access to the entire condo and private balcony. We ask that you let us know whether you intend to use one or both of the bedrooms, as this will affect cleaning time after you check out. The loft also has a convenient parking spot right outside the unit door.
You will access the unit through a door on the ground level after obtaining a key through a coded storage access. This means that check in can be more flexible, as you don't need to arrange a specific time for a key exchange. If you would like us to meet you at the loft for check in, that can be arranged as well.
Note: The unit is on the second floor, so there is one flight of stairs leading up to the loft. There is an extra key to the elevator that we can give you if you need, but please let us know before you check in.
The hallway leading to the unit is shared with one other residential unit and one commercial real estate office below. I ask that you are respectful of the neighbors, as this is their home and place of work, and they are all friendly, welcoming Missoula residents!
Interaction with guests
We live in town just a few minutes away from the loft if anything needs to be done during your stay. We are always available via text/phone to answer any questions that may come up. We love Missoula and would be happy to give our recommendations.
Other things to note
Dogs can be accommodated for a $25/pet fee. Please inquire when booking if you would like to bring along your canine friend! Dogs cannot be left alone in the loft, but we are happy to host well behaved four legged friends.
We have a two night minimum, however we can sometimes accommodate a 1 night stay.
